Time Salon: Dandelions, Astrolabes & Emergence Oh My! | Sacred Keepers Sustainability Lab | Tuesday, 22. August 2017

Are you are brimming with excitement about the shift adrienne maree brown's "Emergent Strategy" has effected on your life and work?

Maybe you have encountered a friend or kin whose gleeful exuberance rubbed off and made you curious as to the source of this emotion.

Or you are walking a line between sacred ecology, changemaking and creativity wondering how best to weave these cherished world together.

No matter the source, this Time Salon is for you. We want to discuss emergence, experiement with biomimicry, observe and participate in knitting ourselves a little closer each time to a deeper relationship with ecology and ecosystem as an author of new habits.

Bring a notebook. If you do not have a copy of "Emergent Strategy", make that known so that we can ensure that copies are procured. If you do have a copy, mark it to your heart's content and prepare to a lead a reading/discussion of your most enduring passage(s).

More details and experiements in ecological practice to come. Watch this event channel.

*4th Tuesday of each month was chosen in a mostly emergent manner. Given the proximity of some dates to major milestones on the calendar, future meetups are subject to change or relocate as necessary.

JACKET COPY: Inspired by Octavia Butler's explorations of our human relationship to change,Emergent Strategy is radical self-help, society-help, and planet-help designed to shape the futures we want to live. Change is constant. The world is in a continual state of flux. It is a stream of ever-mutating, emergent patterns. Rather than steel ourselves against such change, this book invites us to feel, map, assess, and learn from the swirling patterns around us in order to better understand and influence them as they happen. This is a resolutely materialist "spirituality" based equally on science and science fiction, a visionary incantation to transform that which ultimately transforms us.

The Time Salon is a facilitated gathering offered by the Kola Nut Collaborative which guides participants through dialogue and practice in communal asset mapping, social economy and non-monetary exchange. In this intentional space, we challenge the idea that participation in a framework of economic exchange necessitates the use of the dollar as currency.
